Traveling to London and Paris for the first time will open your eyes to the splendors of Europe. See London’s most famous landmarks on a guided sightseeing tour before traveling to sparkling Paris.
Oscar and Felix. Lavern and Shirley. Batman and Robin. Few things go together like London and Paris. And no one pairs them quite like Monograms. On this all-in-one 7-day package, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, transportation, daily breakfasts and connection between cities. Plus a one-of-a-kind feature is our Monograms Local Host®, there for you in both cities throughout your stays, ensuring everything runs smoothly and you get the most of your trip.
Your vacation starts the moment you arrive, as we can seamlessly get you from baggage claim to your selected hotel. There, you’ll meet your Local Host, who will provide a welcome greeting and a set of materials to help you get settled and personalize your vacation. The next morning, after your included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for your exclusive Monograms sightseeing, a half-day excursion with an expert local guide. You’ll hear the inside story of must-see sights like Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace in London, as well as arranging perfect timing to see the changing of the guard and an inside visit to St. Paul’s Cathedral. In Paris, we include inside visits to Notre Dame and the Louvre (Louvre replaced with Seine cruise on Tuesdays). And never fear—we’ve scouted the city’s best vantage point to view the Eiffel Tower. Each of your inside visits include our exclusive VIP access, so you skip the lines. After all, why not spend your time inside the attraction rather than outside with the tourists? And on the third day in each city, choose to explore on your own (with our Local Host support, of course), or take advantage of one of over 60 special activities & excursions to suit your interests. Prime seats to a West End show, perhaps?
And did we mention that we’ve included tickets on the high-speed Eurostar train? It’s the best way to get from London to Paris. With all the time you’ve saved and you’re one happy traveler!
Day 1 London, England
Welcome to London! Your Local Hosts will help you maximize your stay in one of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities.
Day 2 London
Morning guided sightseeing and orientation includes all of London’s famous landmarks. Drive past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben; Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married; Whitehall’s mounted horseguards; the Prime Minister’s Downing Street; and Piccadilly Circus. Take photographs of the London Eye, the giant Ferris wheel situated on the river bank, and the Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe. Visit ST. PAUL’S CATHEDRAL (except on Sundays). Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece with its world-famous dome is an iconic feature of London’s skyline, and the awe–inspiring interior holds fascinating stories about its history. The final highlight is the ceremonial pageantry of the Changing of the Guard (if held) at Buckingham Palace.
